Fellow Talk: ‘Representing the Arab World’
Ted McDonald-Toone

Saturday 25 July 2015 | Blue House 6:30 pm


Ted McDonald-Toone will talk about his recent research on the history of exhibitions of contemporary art from the Arab world, which has focused partly on how museums and other exhibition-making organisations have attempted to 'represent' the Arab world in the form of pan-regional exhibitions. He will also consider how Darat al Funun, as an institution unique to Amman and its national and regional contexts, has used exhibitions across its history, including the current one, 'Rituals of Signs and Transitions (1975-1995)'.
